A bit surprised that no one has requested this simple powerful feature yet, my team’s boards is a total mess, it would be great if we are able to archive Projects mainly, boards archive would be nice to have but it wouldn’t substitute the projects.

This is especially helpful for Agencies and Freelancers who work with many projects a year, right now the only way to keep the directory clean is by by up the projects and deleting them, which is not fun when you have many boards within a project.

 

You guys are doing a great job with the product, but i really think it’s time to look beyond the board features and look after the directory and the organizational issues a bit, thanks.

@Yousef -

This is a useful enhancement request for sure!

As a workaround, you could use the strategy I’ve recommended before for “hiding” boards, namely, create an Archive project, and just move all the boards you no longer want into it. This works even if you are not the board owner.

the compromise there is that we usually have multiple boards per client so it would be more practical to archive/unarchive projects for future reference, i guess we could go and rename the boards with a certain convention etc, but it just makes you wonder why do we have to go through this process for a simple straightforward feature - or what at least seems to be simple, i hope it will be considered.

 

nevertheless thanks a lot @Kiron Bondale this is definitely one nice workaround and for the time we can make use of it

+1 for this. We use a separate Miro project for every live online training we do. Each project has a collection of boards and is specific to a different client. We have an unmanageable list of projects - we just want to archive some to an Archive folder!

 

 

Oh god, please do it.

I’m only around 20 board and it’s a total mess

Is there any update on this topic? I’m also using Miro for online training. Archiving a project of a workshop would be fantastic (you never know if you need some information from that workshop). 

And hiding projects would be great as well! There is always a high chance that I share the screen with Miro’s project tree by mistake. Workshop participants could then see all my other projects (as well as the ones that team members shared with me).

Hi, 

Is there any update on this?  My team and I are currently evaluating Miro. While we like the whiteboard aspect, there is no organization within Miro.  This is a need from our end, rather than a nice to have features. 

 

Thank you so much!

 

As many have said, this is a must feature not a nice to have.

Unless you have another elegant way in mind for:

  • organising our content
  • doing that in bulk
  • clean landing page with no diagrams showing
  • hidden/archived projects, not just diagrams
  • Drag and drop would be a fairly basic QoL too

 I do love you though.

We have just upgraded to a paid plan, and the usage of Projects is great, however, within our “Product” Project we are creating a board linked to Jira epics, and hence, once the epic is complete, we want to archive the board… seems like a bit of a no brainer…?
